I grew up on the south side of Chicago and in a very busy weekend, got married, graduated college and moved to Los Angeles.

Although my degree is in Fine Arts, all I ever wanted to be was a writer and I've been doing it in one form or another for as long as I can remember. My shining moments in elementary and high school always involved stories or poetry I'd written. I wrote news stories and a weekly column in my college newspaper. My first job out of college was working on the newsletter of a finance company. I worked for a public relations firm and wrote press releases and biographies. Later I wrote proposals for video projects and television shows that went through various stages of development.

I tried writing screenplays and wrote three.

“Izabelle had taken off with”
Betty Hechtman, A Stitch in Crime

“Tag arrived with the food. The Blue Door was known for using as much local food as possible. Tag had brought thin-crust gourmet pizzas with fresh mozzarella cheese, tomatoes they grew behind the restaurant, garlic from Gilroy, artichoke hearts from Castorville and olives from Paso Robles. I knew the vegetables in the chopped salad came from a local farmer’s market that sold produce grown in the Salinas Valley and the dressing was made with olive oil from a boutique grower in Carmel Valley. He’d brought a selection of fruit—raspberries from Watsonville, strawberries from Oxnard, grapes from Delano—and a selection of cheeses from a small producer in Point Reyes Station.”

“Heal the World with Chocolate Muffins 1 stick unsalted butter (4 ounces), melted and cooled 2 large eggs, well beaten 1 cup buttermilk 2 tsp vanilla extract 2 cups all-purpose flour 1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder 1 cup sugar 2½ tsp baking powder ½ tsp salt 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Butter or line with paper inserts 14 muffin cups. In a bowl, whisk together the melted butter, eggs, buttermilk and vanilla extract. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking powder and salt. Stir in the chocolate chips. Fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Stir just until the ingredients are combined. Do not overmix. There will be lumps in the batter. Fill the muffin cups evenly with the batter. Place in the oven and bake for approximately 25 minutes or until a toothpick stuck in the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes before removing the muffins from the pan.”
